hfmejias (1060) - Dover, Delaware, USA - SEP 9, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, deep amber, nice head and a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma: Malty, märzen like, some caramel and some citrus hops. Interesting take on a Märzen/Oktoberfest style beer, and actually not bad; if you are looking for typical this is not the beer for you, It has the standard qualities of a this type of beer, Malty, sweet, toffee/caramel notes but they are balanced with some hopes, giving it a nice bitterness and quite enjoyable taste. Fun to try, and quite interesting; kudos...

clear amber with a small white head. fruity, malty, estery aroma. more fruity than toasty. in typical leinenkugel fashion this beer has a good bit of residual sweetness. the malts are sweet with notes of toast, butter and caramel. fruity, berry-like hop flavors. full body with slightly sticky. sweet and tasty

bnokk (286) - Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle APPEARANCE ? pours a nice amber, like most US style Oktoberfests. NOSE - Smells like a lager, not much malt to it ? despite it?s color. FLAVOR ? the lightest of malt flavors, otherwise pretty unremarkable.

ccex (1080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2015
12 oz. bottle pours a clear reddish brown with a small off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is full of caramel and toffee malts, brown sugar, bread and some prunes. Taste is too sweet for my tastes, with no hop presence. Body is medium to full with low carbonation and an oily mouthfeel. The ABV makes this one a sipper. Not one of my favorites in the Big Eddy series.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, reddish brown pour with thin off white head, aroma is toast, dough, grain into a bit of caramel, toffee, slight grass. Taste was a mix of grass, hints of earth, slight toasted bread and dough, slight caramel into some grainy notes, finishing boozy, sweet.

patrick767 (3728) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 11, 2015
bottle - This dark amber beer has a mild caramel malt aroma with a little alcohol. The flavor is sweet malt with toasted caramel, toffee, and maybe a touch of dark fruit. Dry hopped? I’m not noticing much hops. It’s alright but not as good as a couple of the other Big Eddy releases.

madvike (3105) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle - Pours reddish-brown with a ring of white head. Nose is caramel, boozy astringency, and tons of malt. Lots of sweet bread malt in the taste, with cherry, graham cracker, and toffee. Slick and medium-bodied.

Beerdedone (2978) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2014

tectactoe (3122) - Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle: Dark amber & copper body, nice clarity with a fine-bubbled, creamy eggshell cap that lasts for a nice amount of time. Aroma is VERY mild. Touch of sweet caramel malts, light toast, perhaps a hint of prune. Kind of hard to pull much from it. Flavor is jam-packed, though. Very robust malty sweetness. Caramel, toffee candies, coated in a light brown sugar rub, A touch of toast, plum, fruity esters, & hints of red licorice. Maybe even almost too sweet, but still very flavorful. A light earthy tone in the finish, but still lingers with mostly Caramalt sweetness. Sticky, heavy body. Decent, though I prefer "lighter" Oktoberfests, I think.
